Thunderful Games has announced Paper Cut Mansion, a horror roguelike with a unique handcrafted aesthetic, coming to Xbox later this year.
Playing as Toby, a police detective, you'll have to discover the story behind the titular mansion. Each run of the game's roguelike structure offers an opportunity to collect another piece of evidence, which can then be tacked to the Evidence Board. You'll meet characters along the way, some of whom will help, and some who might even hinder you on your journey.
Along the way, you'll be able to unlock new abilities, discover new equipment, and you can even hop between three alternate versions of the same location, each offering up unique visuals and gameplay.
“I’m really excited to give people a first look at this intricate paper world we’ve been crafting. We wanted to create something unique, but that draws inspiration from the classic 80s and 90s works of Tim Burton and Jim Henson,” said developer Gabriele Caruso. “The team has worked really hard to create a mysterious and visually appealing world that’s going to draw players in, and provide them with a compelling roguelite loop that’s going to keep them coming back. I can’t wait to tell you more about the game as we get closer to release!”
Paper Cut Mansion is launching on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2022. You can watch the gameplay trailer to see the game in action down below.
